Baja 5b 4PKS-R or M11X or M12

Well it looks to me like my brand new DX3R Pro is as good as junk for my Bajas. So I am looking to go with a Futaba or Airtronics radio but cant decide what to go with. I want something top notch as I am used to the features on my DX3R Pro as this was an upgrade from my DX3R. As far as other R/C stuff all i have 3 Baja's, a Losi 5T, a Losi 8T, and getting into crawlers.

What does everyone suggest? My biggest issue is making sure I have awesome reception for my Bajas and 5T.

Radiopost I've seen mine reach "I couldn't see my Baja" distances.

The radiopost peaks my interest. Receivers are lots cheaper. What is the latency like on them though?

What about programmable 4th channel for crawling

Futaba have great radio range easy to set it up, and the 4pksr has the function for rock crawling ur after. It also has receiver that are 7.4v capable. And It's light on the wrist. I run it on a 400 distance and I'm standing half way no interference.

Great radio.

Don't tell me you sold it? U fell in love with it, was it that difficult to program?

I was looking forward to some feed back from you, I was thinking about purchasing one, I needed to know what range you where getting. What are you using now?

Cheers

changed from DX3R Pro to 4PKS-R, never had any trouble with Spektrum but the Futaba is definately a better bet for 5th scale manage to get more range in the dunes with the Futaba with no delay than with the Spektrum.

Airtronics MT-4. That was my upgrade from a DX3R Pro and I never looked back. Plus if you are into Crawlers they have functions on there specific for that Hobby.
